The walled city of Chester was originally founded as a fort during the Roman Empire, and through the centuries, the city slowly became the charming mix of medieval and contemporary design that we see today. From historical sites to the latest amusements, everyone will definitely find lots of places to visit and activities to do in this beautiful city.
A must-see is the splendid Chester Cathedral. This impressive religious monument has been rebuilt and added to many times, so you’ll notice that several different architectural styles are evident in its interior and exterior appearance, including Romanesque, Gothic, and Neoclassical. Why not stop off at the spectacular Roman Amphitheatre, the largest amphitheatre in Britain, to your visit for a complete historical tour.
Are you a fan of the sport of kings? Get that adrenaline flowing by watching the thrilling, edge-of-seat action at Chester Racecourse. Guinness World Records officially recognises this as the oldest racecourse still in operation, so don’t miss this one-of-a-kind opportunity.
Shop ‘til you drop at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet. From designer brands to affordable finds suitable for anyone’s budget, you’ll find plenty of goodies. Head for The Rows and you’ll probably spend more time taking pictures of charming half-timbered buildings before entering any shop - although the quaint and quirky independent boutiques will soon pull you in!
